Hi

Just looking for a consensus view on dynamics when recording piano..

In post production I'm not exactly sure what tool is best to improve the overall spectrum of dynamics? What i did find helpful when recording from a digital piano, was to change the key's "touch sensitivity feature" from Medium to Hard.

There was a slight reduction in tonal clarity when switching to Hard, but i found on the whole it provided for a more controlled performance when recording.. minimising much of the high and lows of undertones and overtones.

I think that the hard setting is to be avoided. I used it in my early days ... and only later discovered that using it is a cover-up for being too heavy handed at the piano.
That is, I'd press too hard, and the hard touch-setting compensated.

It's a crutch. I stopped using it. I shed the crutch by learning to better control the piano.
